Sobi shot video of the Sobi lock working on a real bike. They';re using a cellphone to unlock the bike and then they lock it back up again at a different place, allowing the next Sobi member to pick the bike up and ride around on it. As you may recall, the SoBi system allows for bike sharing without additional infrastructure. The system uses a lock fastened to the bike's wheel with a GPS system and transmitter built-in. When the bike is locked, it appears on the SoBi app and when you check it out you're responsible for it. You don't need special kiosks or other accoutrements to create a bike-sharing network anywhere in the world.
